The far left liberal whackjob bloggers have been attacking Governor Palin all weekend. These are not the usual attacks you get, and expect, in a campaign. They were not attacking her on her experience, any political scandals, or voting record. They were spewing hateful personal attacks.
We had liberal bloggers saying that her youngest child was not hers, that she was covering up for a pregnancy by her daughter. As it turns out her daughter is currently pregnant, something that is no business of these dirtbags, and therefore could not have had the child.
We had Alan Colmes questioning her decision to get on a plane after her water broke and going home to her regular doctor. First, I did not realize his name was Dr Colmes. She did call her doctor (a real doctor, not a radio and TV host) before she headed home. Finally, this was her fifth child and she and her doctor knew what to expect. While Colmes did not come out and say it, he was clearly trying to insinuate that her child having Downs Syndrome was from this irresponsible decision of her doctor and her. What they probably should do is call in the ambulance chaser John Edwards to sue, this is how he made his living after all.
It would also make a side note here. I noticed Fox did not report on this Colmes story. I like Fox but this is a little too convenient for me.
The silence form Obama was deafening this weekend. He let these people trash Palin and her family all weekend and finally came out with a statement saying he was offended by these comments. He said that a candidate’s family was out of bounds. What didn’t he say? He didn’t say that he thought that the attacks were erroneous, they were. He didn’t criticize them for saying these types of things, he just said they should stop.
So the man that has whined about the GOP “swift boating” him spent two days ignoring these remarks and he never actually disavowed the remarks.
It also should be noted that he did not disavow the remarks by the Democratic super delegate, Don Fowler, and their village idiot Michael Moore that the hurricane Gustav was a gift from God to the Democratic party.
This is man who, for the past three months, has raised all kinds of Hell at any Republican statement and immediately demanded that John McCain disavow the remark. Now he goes missing for two days while people on the left spew vile hatred about Palin and her family.
I don’t think there were any mistakes here. I believe that the campaign a least approved of the attacks, if they were not out and out perpetuating them. I believe what has happened here the last two days on both of these issues is that the Obama campaign allowed this to continue. Just long enough for the word to get out and then he came out and made his statement. Why did it take two days for him to finally get offended by these remarks?
I think this is just one more look into the character of the man who professes to be the “change” candidate. If this is change, I want things to stay the way they are.
